May you be flooded with blessings! Below is some advice from Achiezer (a Jewish organization that dealt with Hurricane Sandy).

  1. Try to make sure that you reach out to anyone that has not yet drained the water and dried out their basements, that this is one of the single most important things that they can do.

  1. Just to reiterate again, all sheetrock and insulation that came into contact with water should be removed immediately.

  1. Wet carpet and soaked items need to be dried or moved somewhere where they can dry off, or the mold will run rampant.

  1. Advise all homeowners to take extensive photographs of their damage including water levels and damaged content, EVEN if they don’t have flood insurance. We still don’t know to what extent FEMA will step in, and they might want proof. If you throw these things out, take pictures beforehand.

  2. With regards to restoration company’s and “contractors” be careful. Don’t just sign contracts that sound “good”.
